Se trata de una iglesia con planta de cruz latina, tres naves longitudinales, nave transversal o transepto y cabecera pentagonal. Carece de girola. Los dos hastiales del transepto alojan dos grandes ventanales-rosetones que acentúan la luminosidad interior del templo. Las naves hasta el crucero, de las que es más ancha y elevada la central, se segmentan en cinco tramos cubiertos con bóvedas barlongas de crucería simple. Los dos brazos del transepto constan de dos tramos abovedados de igual manera. El crucero es el único tramo que presenta crucería compleja, al incorporar terceletes entre los nervios principales. Desde el crucero hasta la cabecera, las naves se prolongan con otros tres tramos. En este espacio posterior las naves laterales se convierten en cuatro, dos a cada lado, hasta igualar la anchura del transepto, dando como resultado sendos espacios de igual altura divididos en seis tramos y separados por cuatro pilares. La esbelta torre-campanario, situada sobre el pórtico de entrada, se inspira claramente en las agujas de la Catedral de Colonia. El conjunto de pilastas y contrafuertes rematadas en pináculos y de gabletes rematados en cogollos realzan la verticalidad de todo el edificio. (Fuente:es.wikipedia.org)

This panorama was taken in Northern Spain, Europe

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
